Camels mating

I am back in Saudi Arabia for my work, having finally received my visa on Friday afternoon. I am in Riyadh for the working week (Saturday to Wednesday) then go down to Jeddah for teh last couple of days. Finishing my first day early, I could not wait to go out with a taxi driver and return to the camel market north of the city. It is not so much a market as a place where camels are reared and trained, as well as bought and sold, together with grass and grain and camel paraphernalia. It is spread out over a massive area of desert, for the want of a better word.

I managed to bring some photos back from my last trip and also to find a few of the guys I had taken photos of, so they were very happy to se me back after what has been nine months.

I hung around an area a bit futrher on where some young lads were training a camel, using what seemed to be slightly violent techniques and I also had teh chance to see some camel riders pass by on finely dressed camels, leading their herds backwarsd and forwards, for viewing by potential buyers who followed by car. Some nice pics and vids of this. Later on, as we were about to move on, they told us to wait as they were about to arrange a camel mating session. as can be seen in the video above. This was itself preceded by a colourful and lively short courtship, some of which I have captured in the video on the link here.
